Marisa received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Marine Biology from the University of Rhode Island in 2010 and then lived abroad in Australia for three years.

Since returning to the US, Marisa has been an active volunteer with the Rescue and Rehabilitation department of the New England Aquarium, and has recently graduated from North Shore Community College and become a Certified Veterinary Technician.

Marisa has always been a huge cat lover, having grown up with six cats and being involved with Trap, Neuter, and Release efforts. She now has three cats, Charles Xavier, Mystique and Sammy, and a tortoise named Squirt. Marisa enjoys traveling, running, photography and, of course, hanging around the house with her cats and a good book.
